US begins formal process of withdrawing from WHO

Trump administration begins formal withdrawal from World Health Organization

Following through on a threat he made in May, the Trump administration on Tuesday notified the United States Congress that it is formally withdrawing from the World Health Organization (WHO).

Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, announced the move on Twitter.

“Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the ⁦@WHO⁩ in the midst of a pandemic. To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn’t do it justice. This won’t protect American lives or interests – it leaves Americans sick & America alone,” he wrote.
